Our Curriculum

We utilize a curriculum we developed that draws inspiration from the Creative Curriculum and several states’ Early Learning Standards, which you will see in action in all our centers. Children retain more when they’re having fun so our programs emphasize learning through play. Our curriculum provides a strong foundation for children’s academic success and our teachers provide a warm, nurturing environment in which every child can be successful. Each classroom and our playground have been specifically designed to provide age-appropriate challenges and opportunities. The environment is constructed to stimulate the child’s imagination and to encourage active exploration and discovery.

Parent Communication App

We have an extraordinary Parent Communication App that our teachers use daily to relay information and send pictures to family members, send newsletters, and track developmental progress for each child’s portfolio! With this application, parents/guardians are able to opt into email or text alerts and they can receive any information, instantaneously, about their child and their child’s school day.

Teachers and staff can tag daily pictures with our Developmental Domains (Social/Emotional, Physical, Artistic, Cognitive, and Language/Literacy) and are then able to communicate with the parents/guardians by adding captions or sending quick little notes.

Families LOVE this feature and we’re utilizing it more and more each day! We are so excited to be able to communicate with our families throughout the day and to show them what their children are learning each day.

My name is Liz Guido and I am the Director at our Cranston location! I have been with this organization since June 2014. I began working in the Cranston location teaching Kindergarten and I have worked in all classrooms, infants through school age. Prior to returning to our Cranston location, I was the Assistant Director of our Norwood location!

I graduated from the University of Rhode Island with a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education. I am DIrector II certified in Massachusetts and I also have my state teaching license in both Rhode Island and Massachusetts. I am currently in the process of obtaining my Master’s degree in Special Education from Rhode Island College.

My favorite part of working with children is seeing the dedication of the teachers and their magnitude of warmth and knowledge. In my spare time, I enjoy camping, the great outdoors, and spending time with my husband, Vinny and our two dogs. We recently added a brand new member of the family; our son, Dominic!

Cadence Academy on Budlong in Cranston, RI is a great place for school aged children. Both of my daughters have been a part of all of their programs for the past 3 years. The girls love it there. The staff is great. And Cadence has been very supportive and responsive, especially during the pandemic.

There aren't enough characters to detail how instrumental Cadence Academy and their staff have been in my children's lives. We have been with Cadence Academy back when it was known as The Children's Workshop and have been with the Cranston location since 2016. As a single parent, child care - reliable childcare- is a huge component to making things work. Cadence Academy - Cranston is part of my village helping me raise my kids. The staff are extended family who love and support my two kids as such. The classrooms are super clean, bright, fun, really well decorated, safe, and well balanced when it comes to student-teacher ratio. They provide yummy breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks to the kids (even vegetarian options) included in the cost of tuition. Summer camp is very fun and pre-covid lots of entertainment was provided for the kids such as Kona ice on Fridays, Kid Bus, and friends from the zoo coming to teach the kids about animals. Daycare during covid was initially scary but there is no other place I trust to not only watch my kids while I work, but assist with distance learning than the staff at Cadence. As a response to Cranston's learning model this year, Cadence opened a beautiful classroom allowing for virtual learning. Each classroom has a "pod" system so if one person is exposed to Covid, that pod is closed down as opposed to the whole building. My second grader follows the hybrid schedule which means he goes to in-person school two days a week and three days at cadence. His grades haven't been significantly affected by this schedule and his IEP is supported by the staff. Overall, I would highly welcome those who are searching for quality, professional, friendly, reliable, and overall safe childcare to look into the Cranston location. My kids are 8 and 5 and I plan on having them there until they age out. Best of luck on your search!
